Ourlads' Profile:

What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JAMES PIERRE: Florida Atlantic, 6000 183 4.56. Junior entry, two-year starter, Deerfield Beach, FL. Was honorable mention All-Conference USA in 2019. Primarily played zone including quarters, Cover 2 and 3. Also played some man coverage. Solid Cover 2 corner with ability to re-route and sink under intermediate routes and close voids in zones. Has a feel for the throwing lane while balancing multiple routes. Reads quarterback and receivers and has a burst to close on short routes. In off coverage has a controlled pedal to maintain cushion. Flashed a two hand jam in Cover 2 and gets separation on wide receiver’s block. Eager to hit in run support and closes fast to gather and strike on a tackle. Made a lot of tackles playing hard corner. Struggles to stay in phase in man. Can be late reacting on route breaks and is often separated. Catch up speed is lacking against speedy receivers. In off coverage, cushion is often too big and gives up too much room to react in space. Loses leverage too easily at times. Length is attractive but is limited to a zone corner-primarily Cover 2. Needs development in other areas. 2019 stats: 44 T, 4.5 TFL, 4 PBU, 1 FF, 3 INT. OSR:27/29. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 1/4, H-8 1/2, VJ-33.5, SS-DNP).
